Another issue is GMO foods, and livestock that have been given antibiotics and growth hormones, which a number of countries have banned. Anyone who has eaten organic produce and meat can taste the difference in quality and nutrition - it's incredible.
It's true that vegetarianism isn't going to save the world because it is the agricultural/farming system itself that is corrupt (think also about how many migrant workers get exploited). When she talks about the earth dying, I think she meant less in a "let's save the earth" way and more of a,"if we keep killing the earth we're going to go extinct," because even without us the earth will repair itself.
The author gives a good look around the facts and history of eating and agriculture along the ages and how we as humans have made quite a mess of it all. As well as she walks us trough her story of being vegan and making her way towards the meat eating side and she explains what made her change.
The thing that I wasn't too fond about is her thoughts on the vegans, now that she has "changed sides"
I still totally recommend this book to everyone, it's mind opening. (From a meat eater)
